NikitA is a Ukrainian pop duo formed in Ukraine by Yuriy Nikitin. The group consists Dasha Astafieva and Anastasiya Kumeyko.

They are said to be one of the most unusual Ukrainian music bands, as their specified theme of music is "Sexual Aggression". The band released their little known single "Mashyna" (Machine) in 2008.



The band sings in duet. Nikitin's idea to create the band was under development for quite some time. One of the initial versions of the band's name were Sireny and Divas, however when Nikitin found Dasha and Yulia they decided to name it NikitA which was the name the two ladies used to refer to Nikitin. Nikitin selected Dasha at the Russian-based music project Fabrika Zvezd created by Alla Pugacheva.

Yulia was found by Nikitin a little bit later. Kavtaradze prior to NikitA performed for another band "А.Р.М.И.Я" (as Army). She left that band being pregnant and after giving birth Yulia tried for Nikitin's music project.

The video director of "Mashyna" was Alexander Filatovich. Choreography for the band composed by Anastasia Snadna who had prior experience in that field in the "А.Р.М.И.Я" (Kavtaradze's former band). The music director of the band is Roman Babenko who writes lyrics and composes music.

The group is contracted by the mamamusic music casting company that beside NikitA works with already mentioned "А.Р.М.И.Я" as well as "neAngely" ("НЕАНГЕЛЫ"), Iryna Bilyk, and others.
